Jeremiah Allison has a Rhodes Scholar's resume and a philanthropist's philosophy because of the mentors that shaped him.

In today's paper we tell the story of Allison's upbringing, and the adults that made him into the man he is today. Check that out, and then check out these other stories of interest:

-- That old so and so Christian Caple wrote about Jordan Simone, a former Washington State walk-on who is doing big things at Arizona State.

-- A little bit late with this but Coug-A-Sutra checked in with his preseason Pac-12 predictions and – surprise! – he's bullish on the Cougs.

-- ESPN's Ted Miller wrote about USC trying to regain its status as Pac-12 hegemon.

-- Here's an interesting article about the Pac-12, which isn't looking to expand, according to commissioner Larry Scott.
